Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am running an Ubuntu server which has around 5000 users. The users are allowed to SSH in to the system.

So in order to cap the memory used up by a process I have capped the address space limits using limits.conf. So my question is , should I be limiting the data and stack ? I feel that is not required since I am capping address space. Are there any pitfalls if I do not cap the stack and data limits?
